Center for Peace and Environmental
Justice (CEPEJ) is committed to developing a coalition of local, national and
international leaders as well as organizations together to address critical
issues concerning peace, security, non-violent approach, reconciliation and
environmental degradation in Africa and beyond.
CEPEJ has proposed
Partnerships/Collaboration with organizations to build peace, effective
security and promote environmental education aimed at overcoming issues that
threaten the African continent.
CEPEJ believes that it is time to
settle Africa’s ethnic/religious differences and to critically work towards
attaining continental unity such that citizens are treated equally with rights
to self-expression through peaceful and non-violent means.
To achieve this long-term ideal,
CEPEJ is actively working to promote peace, effective security and
environmental institutions that will collaborate with relevant government
ministries and agencies, as well as organizations to adopt and implement
non-violent means of conflict resolution and sound environmental practices in
our educational system. This is aimed to assist teachers, educators, parents
and instructors to provide a trans-national and trans-generational foundation
for peace and protection of our environment.
We believe that young people should
be involved in the process of regional transformation as they are a key element
to achieving sustainable development.
The source of CEPEJ’s funding is from
endowments, gifts and donations, grants, publications, seminars and workshops.
